Impact of Long-term Hormone Replacement Therapy on In vivo and In vitro Markers of Lipid Oxidation
TLDR
Estrogen and combined HRT do not differ in their abilities to oppose LDL oxidation in vitro or systemic oxidative stress in vivo, but have differential effects on blood lipids.
Role of Vitamin C in Osteoporosis Development and Treatment—A Literature Review
TLDR
Despite promising observations, there are still few observational and intervention studies and their results do not allow for unequivocal determination of the benefits of high daily intake of vitamin C or its long-term supplementation.
Cellular vitamin C accumulation in the presence of copper
TLDR
It is demonstrated in intestinal epithelial cells that dehydroascorbic acid, when generated from ascorbic acid in the presence of copper, can be efficiently transported into the cells and reduced back to ascorBic acid.
Aspectos bioclínicos y patobiológicos de la vitamina C en la especie humana Bioclinic and Pathobiologic features of the Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) in the Human Species.
TLDR
Future studies of the antioxidant effects of vitamin C should be targeted to patient groups at high risk of oxidant damage and should be designed with attention to the pharmacokinetics of oral and parentally administered vitamin.

Influence of oral contraceptives on ascorbic acid concentrations in healthy, sexually mature women.
TLDR
It is possible that OCs alter the intestinal environment thereby decreasing the absorption of ascorbic acid in women taking OCs, and this effect may be reflected in lower concentrations in the blood of women using OCs.
Vitamin C Supplement Use and Bone Mineral Density in Postmenopausal Women
TLDR
Vitamin C supplement use appears to have a beneficial effect on levels of BMD, especially among postmenopausal women using concurrent estrogen therapy and calcium supplements.
Effects of estrogen and progestogen on the ascorbic acid status of female guinea pigs.
TLDR
The results suggest that the interactions between oral contraceptive hormones and ascorbic acid may be of clinical importance only in the case of borderline intake of the vitamin.
Effect of oral contraceptive agents on ascorbic acid metabolism in the rhesus monkey.
TLDR
Urinary excretion of radioactivity, measured for 1 month, indicated a significantly faster AA turnover rate during the period of OCA use, suggesting that women using OCAs may have an increased dietary requirement for AA.
Plasma ascorbic acid concentrations and oral contraceptives.
TLDR
Following the administration of 300 mg of ascorbic acid to oral contraception users urinary analysis showed no increased excretion as a result of oral therapy but there is the possibility that decreased tubular re absorption may occur.
Serum ascorbic acid and gallbladder disease prevalence among US adults: the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III).
TLDR
Ascorbic acid, which affects the catabolism of cholesterol to bile acids and, in turn, the development of gallbladder disease in experimental animals, may affect the risk of gall Bladder disease among women.
Serum Ascorbic Acid and Cardiovascular Disease Prevalence in U.S. Adults
TLDR
Serum ascorbic acid levels were independently associated with prevalence of coronary heart disease and stroke; a 0.5-mg per dl increase was associated with an 11% reduction in coronary heart Disease and stroke prevalence; this results are consistent with the hypothesis that increased ascorBic acid intake may decrease the risk of coronaryHeart disease and Stroke.
